Recently, due to users cut/copy/pasting greetings to new folks in the Introduce Yourself forum in order to run up their post count, the mods and HF staff decided that posts there should no longer be counted in the user's post count. In one recent instance, a user had copy pasted 36 greetings in 1/2 an hour, in an effort to reach 50 posts. This policy went into effect about 8 days ago.
Posts in the Introduce Yourself forum will no longer count towards your user post count.
